Fork Ceramics’ Open Studio

As excellent timing would have it, Ruth from Fork Ceramics decided to hold her very first open studio across the very weekend Andrew & I were in Melbourne. Ruth and I started out at Holmesglen TAFE together and I have loved seeing her brand develop and grow, especially during past year.

After viewing countless photos of her studio online, it was a delight to see the space in person and enjoy catching up over a cup of tea. Sharing our respective highs and lows of the year, our victories and frustrations, it’s clear that Ruth has much to look forward to, in the New Year.

Considering Ruth’s tableware range is already in use at several Melbourne restaurants, if you are able to swing by her Richmond Studio tomorrow between 11am-4pm, you can purchase her plates, cups and bowls with confidence knowing that they are extremely user-friendly and intended for daily use.

After my time with Ruth, I caught a train out to Prahran’s Carbon Black Gallery to see Convergence – the Holmesglen 2013 Graduating Student Exhibition. Tomorrow is the last day of this show (the gallery is open 12-5pm) and its a diverse offering from the four artists. I want to post up a few photos and thoughts on the exhibition but will put that into a separate post next week.

These past two days have been awesome – re-connecting with old friends and spending time together.
On Monday, we’ll head north to be with family and Christmas will only be two sleeps away!

Oh, and yesterday was an exciting day for Servant Ceramics…
